Mother’s Day is synonymous with flowers. Fortunately for you (and your Mom!) there are so many incredible cut flower vendors at farmers’ markets around the province. Many of these vendors are flower farmers and grow their own seasonal blooms, and their fields are already bursting with colour, from beautiful local tulips to fragrant narcissus and spring flowering branches. Pick up a bouquet for the special Moms and Mom figures in your life at your local farmers’ market this weekend, or place an online order for pick up or delivery. If your nearest flower grower isn’t get offering blooms, consider reaching out for a gift card that Mom can enjoy throughout the growing season. Looking for a farmers’ market near you? We’ve got you covered with our farmers’ market map.
